ELLE (Canada) - - Radar -

(Based on the Bill­board charts and our to­tally bi­ased opin­ions.)

1990

“Step by Step” by New Kids on the Block We played this track over and over while dream­ing of get­ting mar­ried to Jor­dan Knight.

1999

“Steal My Sun­shine” by Len This made-in-Canada jam spent 25 weeks on the charts and 19 years stuck in our heads.

2001

“Let Me Blow Ya Mind” by Eve feat. Gwen Ste­fani This hit blew up the same year ELLE Canada launched. The world was never the same.

2004

“Con­fes­sions Pt II” by Usher Usher was play­ing with our emo­tions that sum­mer—he also had the num­ber two spot with “Burn.”

2007

“Um­brella” by Rihanna feat. Jay-Z Baby Riri and Jay-Z. What more could you want? An­swer: An­other col­lab, please.

2011

“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen High-five to our Au­gust 2015 cover star for mak­ing this ear­worm of a track.

2016

“One Dance” by Drake In our hum­ble opin­ion, it took far too long for Drizzy to be­come king of the sum­mer.
